Quotes

...According to the Court in Alice , the invention in Diehr was patentable because it "transformed the process into an inventive application of the formula. [9]"
...With respect to Alice Corp. "s claims, the Court held that the claims were drawn to the concept of intermediated settlement, which it considered to be a “building block of the modern economy.” In keeping with yet another recent decision, Bilski v. Kappos (2010), the Court concluded that the current claims at issue were directed to an “abstract idea.” The Court noted that it was using the similarity between the Bilski claims and the Alice Corp." s claims to hold that the claims were drawn to an abstract idea. However, the Court declined to provide a precise definition for “abstract ideas.”
...Justice Sotomayor (joined by Justices Ginsburg and Breyer) reiterated the position of Justice Stevens' concurrence in Bilski v Kappos that any "claim that merely describes a method of doing business does not qualify as a 'process' under §101"
...has started a trend toward what appears to be a more difficult environment for obtaining new patents to protect biologic discoveries," he said. "With biologics now claiming seven of the top-ten revenue-producing drugs in 2013, the importance of patent issuance and protection could not be more significant to biotech innovation."
